What about that Trout dunk attempt?!!

I haven't heard much talk about Outlaw's dunk attempt in the fourth quarter last night.  Boozer fouled him, causing a miss, and Travis proceeded to can a pair of free throws.  Ultimately it was just one exciting play in a game full of them.  But could it be it was more than that?

Personally, I think that if Boozer hadn't thrown Trout off by fouling him, that dunk would have gone down in the archives.  And not just for Blazer dunks, either.  ESPN recently ran an all-time great dunks countdown that included very, very, few dunks like that one.  I mean, Travis got to the rim so suddenly and with such force that it was unbelievable.  The ball shot off the rim like it had been launched by a cannon!

It was Dr J-esque.  Just scary--a real message to the Jazz that they weren't intimidating ANYBODY.  Did I imagine it, or did the Jazz look a bit stunned afterwards?  They cut to Jerry Sloan on the bench while Travis shot his free throws, and he looked beaten.  

I'd been saying that the Blazers were probably going to have to get into an altercation to stop all the bullying they'd been subjected to lately.  But maybe all it takes is a dunk attempt like that one by shy, skinny little Trout to send a message to the league.  That is, "Back off: the Baby Blazers are growing up!"
